Hamburg’s Helena Hauff has skyrocketed in the global techno and electro reigns over last two years by way of her clear-cut craft and exceptional curation behind the decks.
After a catapult into the limelight through her transcendent BBC Radio 1 Residency and debut BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, she followed up with a legendary B2B set with Ben UFO at Sonar 2017. As if that’s not already impressive enough, she’s also graced the covers of Crack Magazine, DJ Mag, and earned herself a deserved ranking in Mixmag’s Top 20 DJs of 2016.
Indeed, Hauff will only continue to make waves in a multitude of techno realms throughout the year. Now she’s announced a brand new EP — Have You Been There, Have You Seen It — out on Ninja Tune Oct. 27.
Recorded at her studio in Hamburg, the new EP finds Hauff in magnificent form. She transcends her previous space of creation, by way of a muscular and overtly shadowy analog excursion.
On her latest, “Gift,” Hauff reveals a new facet of her sonic tendencies with a more lucid, flowy deliverance than ever before. Known for her sharp, driving, and at times brooding techno numbers, “Gift” remains akin to her work while opening us up to a new side of her abilities. The track channels industrial-heavy influences, albeit in a much more nuanced manner.
